Comments: Hiked Turkey Creek trail today in perfect weather. The scenery was great and the hike was very enjoyable. This trail is great for beginners and dogs as well. If you looking for solitude this is probably not the trail for you. There are camp grounds nearby and I think a lot of people frequent this trail. I saw maybe 10 to 12 people on the trail and most everyone had a dog or two with them. All were off their leashes but just strolled right on by. I would highly recommend this trail vs all the others I've listed before. There is a lot of shade, a lot of greenery and even some water and wildlife. Did see a notice to watch out for Mountain lions but if you are familar with these animals you know adults are pretty much in the clear. If you take kids just keep them close and keep your eyes open. Great Trail though
